BJP national general secretary Vinay Katiyar on Thursday said his party would give a reward of Rs one lakh to any civilian who killed terrorist.
Speaking at a week-long 'save Doda-save nation satyagrah' to protest against the killings of Hindus in Doda last month, Mr Katiyar said, " The BJP had taken this decision to give a befitting reply to militants and their designs."
He accused the Congress-led government in Jammu and Kashmir of being hand in gloves with the terrorist.
Senior leader Sahib Singh Verma too endorsed the party's decision to reward those who kill terrorist. " The party will honour even those who happen to be workers of political parties including the National Conference, Congress and People Democratic Party," Mr Verma added.
Taking a dig at the Centre for increasing the prices of petrol and diesel, he said this will have a direct bearing on the common man.
Mr Avinash Rai Khanna, president of the Punjab unit of the BJP in his address accused the Centre and the state government of failing to provide safety and security to life and property of the minority community in Jammu and Kashmir.
Later Mr Verma and Mr Katiyar along with the party cadre led a procession and courted arrest near the civil secretariat.
